Haunted Library

If you’re brave enough, come out to Brookens for the Haunted Library on October 21 st from 8:00 pm-11:00 pm for a truly frightful event. You never knew a library could be so spooky. After this experience you’ll need to sleep with the lights on. It is guaranteed to get you into the Halloween spirit.  You don’t even have to leave campus to get the socks scared off you.

The 6th Annual Haunted Library will take place Friday, Oct 21st
